Advent & Christmas at St Bride's

Since I took over as Rector at the start of November, everyone has told me what an amazing and magical experience it is to celebrate Christmas at St Bride's.

There is something for everyone during December, with our many carol services and seasonal concerts. So do please come along - we shall be delighted to welcome you, whether you come alone or with family and friends.

Join us to celebrate this wonderful season, to sing glorious carols, and to share the magic of the Christmas story. Full List of Carol Services...

Our New Rector!

On Monday 3rd November the Reverend Canon Dr Alison Joyce was installed as Rector of St Bride's Church at a Service of Institution and Induction by the Bishop of London

"Alison brings intellect, energy, a strong commitment to pastoral care and a profound spirituality to St Bride's and will continue the long tradition of outstanding Rectors", said The Very Revd John Hall, Dean of Westminster and Patron of St Bride's.

December 22

"They will call him Emmanuel, 'God with us'." (Matthew 1: 23)

During Advent the sense of expectation grows, heightened by the readings from the Old Testament which anticipate the birth of a Saviour. We are told that God delivers on his promise of justice by coming among us. As we wait for the birth of Christ, are we waiting expectantly, in hope, preparing a place for Emmanuel in our hearts?

Lord, you have promised to be with us on our journey of faith. Teach us to share a message of hope for a troubled world. Amen.

The Spirit of Christmas at St Bride's

For just over two years St Bride's has been recording the many events and services held throughout the year; some of these services have been made available to Listen Online.

These recordings have generated a wonderful archive and we are now sharing the best moments.

The Spirit of Christmas is the first CD issued under our new St Bride’s Live label.
